The following local democrats have signed the call for the meeting: Thomas F. Weedin, J. F. Iivin, Fred A. Larson, Vernon Clark, S. J. Mi chelson, J. P. Iavin. The call has the following pertinent statement at its completion. "Everybody come as there will be plent of ice water and fans." The Buckeye Canal- company has called a special meeting for Septem ber 5 to consider some important changes in their by-laws. At the present time the annual assessment made by the water company at $1.50 per acre for all the water that might be used by any stockholder. This amount, however, has not only paid the maintenance expense, but has also provided for all the necessary improvements which have been made during this time. Under the new riding the annual assessment will probably not exceed $1.00 per acre. o Horses sleep but three or four hours in each twenty-four.

Total state tax levy $0.44500 The net raise made by the board over the total valuation returned by the counties amounted to less than three millions, as compared with an increase of over six millions made by the board last year. Material raises were made on property in the larger cities of the state, where the Somers system of veal estate valua tion hag been adopted, but few com plaints were filed. The largest increase was made in the valuation of railroads, cattle, sheep and, . banks. Railroad assess ments were raised over six millions, range cattle to $24 per head, and sheep to $3.50 per head. Bank valua tions were raised, largely on account of a readjustment of the valuation on the basis of the market valuation of the shares. The valuations submitted by the county assessors of Greenlee and Mohave counties were lowered by the board of equalization, the decrease in Greenlee being $304,930 and In Mo have $148,894.46. In all the other counties Increases were made, the greatest raise being in Gila county, where the raise was $1,231,756.24.

That the board considers the im- portance of economy and the avoid ance of all unnecessary expense in connection with the county govern ments is shown by the following let ter which was sent out vesfenlav tr the boards of supervisors of the sev eral counties of the state. A copy was also sent to the countv superin tendents of schools. Aucust 11. 1914. To the Honorable Board of Super visors: Gentlemen: The attention of this commission has ben directed to the tentative budgets contuininc the Itemized expenditures of monies to be raised by direct taxation in some of the counties in this state, setting forth alleged excessive levies as con templated by law, and requesting tha.t action be taken to prevent same. Assurance was eiven to nil such complaining taxpayers that the com mission would use its best efforts trior to the making of the levies to keep same as low as possible and consistent with eroort Government and after they had been made, should any not be confined to the limits of the tax law, would take such steps as might be necessary to have the spirit of the law carried out. In this connection, it might be rioted that owing to the war now going on in foreign countries, de pressive conditions have temporarily taken place in certain portions of the state. While we feel that these con ditions will not be in any degree per manent, yet it is the belief of the commission that they are worthy of careful consideration to the end that you curtail any unnecessary expense apparent, whether it be In connection with the county government direct or the expenditures for schools over which you have only limited control. We believe that conditions warrant the co-operation with your board of the superintendent of schools of your county, and to this end we are tak ing the liberty of sending him a copy of this communication and requesting that he meet with you on the 17tll ir.st., when your final levy is decided upon. Very truly yours, STATE TAX COMMISSION'. Jesse I-. Uoyce, Secretary. Inasmuch as the necessity of com- t pleting the task of computing the state tax levy compelled the state board of equalization to work all day Monday and well into the night, it was impossible for the board to com ply with the governor's request that the office be closed during the aft ernoon as a mark of respect to Mrs. Woodn w Wilson. The board, how ever, adopted the following resolu tion, a copy of which has been for warded to the president: Resolution. Whereas, The stat board of equal ization, now in session, finds 'it im possible to close its office and ad journ this afternoon out of respect for the memory of the president's wife, Mrs. Woodrow Wilson, whose funeral is being held today: Therefore, Be it resolved, that this beard express its heartfelt grief for the country's loss, its deepest sym pathy for the president in his hour of great sorrow, and its hope that the great God of humanity will give the president strength to survive his terrible affliction, and that he may be preserved to this nation at this critical period. And be it further resolved, That n TU NHL SCHOOL OPENS SEASON 1014-15 (Special to The Republican.) I'LAf.STAFP, Aiiz., Aug. 11.

(;ERMANS"haVE GREAT NAVY, BUT ITS SMALL COMPARED WITH FOES' UNITED FLEETS German dreadnoughts in battle formation; German dreadnought firing a broadside. A study of the navies of the warring nations in Europe indicates that while Germany is powerful on the sea, she and Austria have nothing like the combined sea strength of England, Russia and France. Germany has not a single superdreadnought built and has crhly three building. Eng land has thirteen superdreadnoughts in commission and seventeen build ing. Germany has seventeen dreadnoughts; Austria two; France two; Great Britain sixteen. Germany has thirty other battleships; Austria fourteen; Russia thirteen; France twenty-seven; Great Britain forty-eight England and her allies have 62 armored cruisers; Germany and Austria 12. Germany has twenty-seven submarines; Austria eight; Russia thirty-one; France seventy-three; England seventy-seven. The German dreadnoughts seen in battle formation above are of the Deutchland type, Grmany's crack $0,000,000 fighting machine. The dread noughts which belong to this class are the Deutchland, Schleswig-Holstein, Pommern, Schlesien and Braunschweig. The first five are of 13,400 ton displacement and the last named is of nJ,997 ton displacement.
